Business is brisk at the Ole Curiosities and Book Shoppe, a block off the town square in Monroeville, Ala.
Jennifer Brinkley and her friend Leigh Mikovch are at the counter, putting in a pre-order for Go Set a Watchman, the much anticipated forthcoming book from Harper Lee.
"We're big Harper Lee fans and To Kill a Mockingbird fans," Brinkley says.
Both are writers from Bowling Green, Ky. They're visiting Monroeville for the annual Alabama Writers Symposium. Brinkley says it will be meaningful to have the new book come from Lee's hometown.
